In the May 2017 issue of Veterinary Practice News:

I'm picking and choosing my paraphrases:

Avian Influenza returns to wreak havoc. H7N9 avian flu was found in
Tennessee in a supplier for Tyson Foods. It's now been quarantined, as are
30 other farms that appear unaffected. A less-severe strain, H5N2 was
found a week later in Wisconsin at a Jennie-0 Turkey farm. USDA said tests
show the Wisconsin strain is of North American wild bird origin and
different than the H5N2 strain that hit in 2015. The CDC reported there
have been no human infections from either virus identified in the US to
date.
